Ghanaian welterweight Fredrick Lawson (22-0, 20 KO's) continued his undefeated run with a round six stoppage of Mohammed Kayongo (17-4-1, 12 KO's) at the Myth Maplewood in Minnesota, USA .
Lawson dominated the entirety of the bout, he strafed Kayongo with combinations to the head and body in every round and ultimately forced referee Mark Nelson to end matters.
The stoppage came after a single head shot and two quick hooks which snapped Kayango and sent him wobbling backward on unsteady legs.
"I opened fire on him and he was sweating, I opened my AK 47 attack on him right from round one and never looked back. In the 5th round I knocked him down and the referee counted him, when he stood up he started roaming in the ring like he was mad. The bell saved him but he didn’t return”.

"A fight is a fight and I have only 2 options in the ring, get serious and work hard so that’s just what I did.I was far away from my home, far away from my city so all I got was to concentrate and work hard. I know where I’m from, I don’t joke in the ring, I’m serious".
"Probably next month we have another fight so we fly out to Chicago tomorrow to start training again. Tell Ghanaians to keep on praying for me and expect something big from me in a year and half. I keep on working hard for Ghana”, Lawson was quoted as saying in an interview with Allsports.com.gh.
